Thank you .
Have you tried the add-on compatibility reporter?
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...lity-reporter/

Have you tried editing the add-on's .rdf file?
C:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<Profile Name>\extensions\<add-on ID>\install.rdf
Working out which ID belongs to which add-on can be tricky though.

Many add-ons include a line like this (this has been edited to say FF7):
<em:maxVersion>7.0.0</em:maxVersion>
You should also edit the add-on's version number and make it larger (to prevent the auto-updater from replacing it).

You may also need to edit:
C:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<Profile Name>\extensions.rdf
Make up a backup of your profile BEFORE you try it though.


I have a copy of the installer (UK version), but I've got no idea how to send it to you.

Use the Compatibility Reporter 0.8.5 which allows your addins to continue to run in FF 5.0 even if not officially compatible and allows you to report issues with said add-ons.

I had two add-on's reported as not compatible but they continue to work after the upgrade.

Seems Quicker

I can't say I've noticed any differences.
It seems quicker on my real machine though.

I'm sticking with 3.6, until Chrome cleans up their act then I'm switching to Chrome.

What did Chrome do?

Did they do anything with the UI to give it that classic pre-4.0 look instead of looking like a mix of IE & Opera?

Mozilla kills security updates for Firefox 4

Quote:
When Mozilla launched Firefox 5 yesterday, there were no mentions of security updates for Firefox 4. And for good reason: Mozilla is treating Firefox 5 as 4′s final security update.

My only issue with Firefox 5 concerns Windows 7 jumplists --


I have my Firefox icon pinned to the taskbar, and get a jumplist of recently visited sites, just like with IE....but, with IE, I can click on a "pinned" site (one that's pinned to my jumplist), IE opens, and I go on my merry way. With Firefox 5, I click on a pinned site, and nothing happens....the program will not open. Is that normal, or something wrong with either my Windows install or FF 5?
